Cozy Books About Bears

If you take a look around our city, it’s clear that fall has finally arrived! With temperatures dropping and leaves falling perhaps your family is starting to wish you could hibernate like a bear through the cold months. If you imagine your mountain of blankets and comforters to be a warm, cozy den then perhaps you’ll enjoy reading some sweet and snuggly books about bears too. In these books bears are sweet friends and their stories are sure to warm your heart through the chilly days ahead.

This small collection of bear books is only a sampling of the titles available to read about the furry, drowsy animals through the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and may not be available at each location. But remember that books can always be ordered for you and sent to your preferred location. Be sure to ask your librarian for help finding these titles and more books about bears.
